Kennedy Shooting Seal Pups

Strange enough to see a photograph of a Kennedy firing a rifle, one with a telescopic sight no less, as the 50th anniversary of JFK's assassination approaches.

Stranger still to learn that the Kennedy firing the rifle, a 14-year-old granddaughter of late Sen. Robert F. Kennedy, is killing seal pups in Canada, according a caption for the photo written by her father.

The photo was posted this morning on the Facebook page of Maxwell Kennedy, 48, son of Robert and Ethel Kennedy.

Here's what Max Kennedy wrote in the caption for the photo --

Noah and me working with Canadian wild life officials to cull seal population near Rankin Inlet. Over population of seals is causing great damage to local fisheries. Thousands of seal pups must be culled each year. We worked with trappers who taught Noah how to identify the weak ones.

Put another way -- here's a photo of my daughter shooting baby seals.

Imagine the veins-bulging outrage from liberals, animal rights groups and anti-gun activists if the teenage daughter of nearly any prominent conservative was photographed doing the same. Or Sarah Palin for that matter.


  1. Or when the elitist Kennedys fought the electricity generating windmills being put in a place that would ruin the ocean view from their elitist compound.

    Or when Obama tramples rights and gets away with "don't worry, I'm a good guy so I won't abuse the power".

  2. Here's a topic for you, since the peanut gallery in the CV commenters missed the broad hinting entirely:
    "whenever the department discovers that a tax liability was not reported and that a tax filing was not submitted"

    Did it take years to file the lien *because* the income was not reported and therefore was unknown? Is it the usual state's practice to effectively freeze a tax cheat's assets via a lien before filing criminal charges?

    Will Leo be arrested for state tax evasion? Federal?

    Will Leo be able to afford a lawyer now? Is the lien fied first *precisely* to avoid ketting a tax cheat plunk down a very large amount of money as a retainer to his lawyer thereby ensuring that the state cannot get its hands on that money.

  3. Btw, the CDA of 1996 provides that a blog owner shall not be liable for any defamatory statements made by third parties on the blog.

    The internet gets a special pass on that, as a matter of public interest.
